Can you get a baby monitor if you are hard-of-hearing?

I’m about to have a baby. Is a baby monitor available for people who are hard of hearing/deaf?

The short answer is yes. Regular baby monitors provide audio alerts, which might not be ideal for deaf/hard-of-hearing parents. Sometimes the audio tones will not provide an effective way of alerting a deaf/hard-of-hearing parent. 

Baby monitors for deaf/hard of hearing parents provide alternative alert settings, such as vibration or flashing lights to ensure the parent knows when their baby is crying or unsettled. The three features that will be most important to you are video, vibration and lights.
